A War for Your Soul

When I look at the condition of the African-American community, I struggle to stay encouraged about our future. I recently came across this video and it has captured my imagination in a significant way.

A War For Your Soul-regular version from Erisai Films on Vimeo.

Reggie Bullock, the video’s creator, has this to say about the video:

This video was created to inspire young at-risk African-Americans not to fall prey to some of the problems they face in society. The “Master of Darkness” represents that abstract concept of evil that has the potential to reside in the consciousness of mankind.

This video shouldn’t be used to divide people (Black & White).
This video shouldn’t be used to criticize all aspects of hip-hop.
This video shouldn’t be used to allow society to escape from their responsibility to help with financial & academic support.

If used properly, this video will allow our youth to see some of the horrific conditions that their ancestors fought through, and some of the horrific conditions they face today.

I am currently using it in a male mentoring program I am leading. It has sparked good discussion. Take a look at it and I would love for you to share your thoughts with us here.

One thought on “A War for Your Soul

  1. Wow, this is powerful stuff. And I imagine it carries even more weight coming from you, a successful black man who understands what these young men are going through, who has dealt with the same unfairness and frustration that they face.

    Keep up the good work, Pastor Jason. What you’re doing is important, and you are uniquely gifted to do it.
